A familiar face returns and two familiar names join the Andretti Motorsports GTD team for the 2024 season starting at Daytona January 27-28. The team announced today that full season drivers Jarett Andretti and Gabby Chaves will pilot the No. 43 Gallant Building Services Porsche in the WeatherTech Sportscar Championship for the storied 24-hour endurance race. Joining Andretti and Chaves as co-driver for the Endurance events will be Scott Hargrove.
Two-time Canadian Porsche GT3 Cup Champion & 2013 USF2000 Champion, Scott Hargove, will make his first appearance driving for Andretti Motorsports and said, “Returning to the IMSA WeatherTech series with Andretti Motorsports is a truly surreal feeling. I had the pleasure of testing their LMP3 car back in 2022, and we have continued the conversation since. Their decision to field a Porsche 911 GT3R in 2024 makes this a perfect fit. It means the world to me to get back behind the wheel after a long three-year hiatus from the series. I’m very grateful to everyone who has supported me throughout my career and I’m excited for what’s to come. I’d like to extend a special thank you to Jarett and Gabby for placing their trust in me to share the car with them in the upcoming season!”
Returning for his third season with Andretti Motorsports, 2014 Indy NXT Champion and 2015 INDYCAR and Indy 500 Rookie of the year Gabby Chaves echoes his teammates excitement, “I am truly ecstatic for the opportunity to be part of this new chapter in Andretti Motorsports Sports car endeavor. To be able to start our first full season of GTD racing with such a prolific brand like Porsche and their 911 GT3R is an absolute dream. I look forward to getting on track very soon and start our program with our eye on a Rolex at Daytona 24!”
With his third season of IMSA SportsCar Championship racing under his belt, third-generation driver and co-founder of Andretti Motorsports, Jarett Andretti, is looking forward to the intense level of competition that the GTD Class brings, “It will be great to get back to Daytona, this time in the GTD class. Our family has a lot of history with Porsche, namely with Dad winning 24 Hours of Daytona overall in a 962 in 1989. We also have a new number with #43 which has an immense amount of history and we hope to add to it in IMSA competition. The whole team is excited about this new challenge and we hope to add to the Andretti / Porsche history that has already been built!”
The Andretti Motorsports No. 43 Porsche continues in partnership with Gallant Building Services, Window World, Mi Windows and Doors, Schaeffer’s Oil, Superior Auto, Unite Health Share Ministries, Hoo, Bloc Hotels, and Integrative Direct Primary Care.
The Jarett Andretti led team will begin the 2024 season with qualifications for the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona at the IMSA Roar Before Daytona 24 January 19-21.
